Interactive | Et Cultura Festival

Feb. 13-17, 2019


Et Cultura has partnered with the Open Partnership Education Network (OPEN) at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg to curate a series of interactive experiences connecting ideas and thought leaders locally and nationally.

Each day will have a different theme, weaving together stories, challenges and solutions central to our growing community. Designed to engage, entertain and spur discussion, these themed sessions create great opportunities for fresh ideas, collaboration and action–in short, becoming a smarter, better connected city learning together. Have an idea for this year’s EtC StP Interactive festival?
